The UTEP Library's policy regarding book borrowing, Interlibrary Loan services, due dates, and late fees will continue to adjust in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For facilitate a healthy and safe environment, borrowing of print books is currently restricted to graduate students and faculty only. Please see here for more information and instructions.
Borrowing of print books will expand in the future as campus operations open up.
If you have any books checked out that are due between March 1st, 2020 and July 30th, 2020, their due date has been extended to July 31st.
Please return your books to the book drop slot on the front of the Library building just past the bike racks instead of bringing them inside the building. This will help us quarantine and sanitize the books before returning them to the shelves.
From the ILL Department:
"All currently checked out items that are due after 03-01-2020 are being submitted for renewal. You will get new due dates on your email after the lending libraries respond.
If for some reason the lending libraries deny the renewal, you will not get any ILL fines or blocks on your account.
Best way to reach us is via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Interlibrary Loan is not currently processing requests for print items.
Do you have a book you received through ILL that is due to be returned?
Before coming to the Library to return it, email email@example.com so that the ILL staff can request a renewal for you or make other return arrangements.
Yes, you can still request items available electronically, like articles and book chapters-- they are still being processed and delivered as normal.
If you have questions about current requests in progress, or need more info on Interlibrary Loan services, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
